H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo has returned from Kigali, the capital of Rwanda, where he made an official visit on 14th January. There he held a meeting with his counterpart, H. E. Paul Kagame, and signed various cooperation agreements between the two States.

The President of the Republic, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, visited Rwanda in response to the invitation from the Rwandan Head of State, and current President of the African Union, H. E. Paul Kagame.

In a marathon working day, the Equatoguinean delegation also visited historical sites in the country, such as the Genocide Museum, located two kilometres from the city of Kigali. The place holds the written and photographic history of the period of sad memory for the people of Rwanda in 1994, during which over a million people lost their lives, in massacres against the Tutsi population. Accompanied by the Minister for the Environment, Vicente Biruta, and the mayoress of Kigali, the Republic of Equatorial Guinea delegation tours the museum installations. The hosts during the visit explained to the head of State the details of the period of genocide and the peace process, up to the formation of a Government of national unity on 19th July 1994, by the current leader, H. E. Paul Kagame. Before leaving the museum, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo expressed his point of view on the visit in the visitors’ book in this cultural exhibition.
